Power outage results in problems accessing Enviro-weather

Most features and services on Enviro-weather are back online, but lingering issues remain due to a power outage on June 23.

An outage on part of the Michigan State University campus Sunday evening, June 23, 2013, resulted in the loss of power to the servers that run Enviro-weather. Consequently, the Enviro-weather website was offline Sunday evening and Monday morning (June 23-24). Unfortunately, one of the servers also failed and could not be restarted. The Enviro-weather team, most notably, system administrator Jim Brown, worked all day on Monday to transfer programs and data to another server. Most Enviro-weather features were back online by early evening Monday, but some issues and broken links remain.

Most notably, the Custom Reports (data on demand) are not yet functioning. We will continue to work to repair all the broken links and other Enviro-weather features that you rely on.

Feel free to contact me, Beth Bishop, Enviro-weather coordinator, at 517-432-6520 or eweather@msu.edu with any questions or concerns.

Enviro-weather provides a suite of weather-based pest and production management tools online. Enviro-weather is funded by Michigan State University Extension, MSU AgBioResearch, Project GREEEN and private donors.
